On May 13, 2021, Ontario announced the extension of its Stay-at-Home Order, which was set to expire on May 19, 2021, until at least June 2, 2021. All public health and workplace safety measures under the provincewide emergency brake will remain in effect. We first wrote about the enactment of this Stay-at-Home order here.
In its May 13 announcement, the government indicated that although positive trends have been seen as a result of measures taken, more contagious variants continue to pose significant risks, and the health care system remains under significant strain; accordingly, more time is required before the Stay-at-Home Order can be lifted.
